Well, I'll be.
Alright, smart aleck, where'd you learn that?
Ha-ha! I've been winning ribbons at horse shows since I was six!
Doll, you are through markin' time! You have met me and now you can start to *live*! We're gonna *find* those diamonds and we're gonna buy a yacht and sail it all the way around the world!
And you deserve each other. I hope you both will always be very seasick.

I didn't know anything about the film before seeing it. I just saw it on the shelf at my local library and the cover made me think it might be a fun flick, a la "Romancing the Stone." Well, it wasn't.
There is plenty of potential for fun, adventure and intrigue (as the cover promises) with Garner, Kennedy and Renzi - who's quite easy on the eyes. But the story (which the plot summary does a fine - albeit no frills - job of covering) and acting is so lackluster, it never gets off the ground. Poorly timed jokes delivered with about as much enthusiasm as someone reading a dictionary; action that is very stilted and uninspired; and intrigue? - it was tacked on to the last 30 seconds of the film.
Besides the fact that less than a few minutes of this takes place in what anyone could consider a "jungle" (after viewing the movie, I found out the title actually refers to a color of lipstick, but the picture on the cover makes it look like it might take place in a jungle setting). The bulk of the movie actually takes place in the desert. In theory, there's nothing wrong with that - but that's not what I was expecting from the title and the cover.
Rather disappointing, overall.
